Imagine being a node operator for an Access Grid (AG) event when the network audio becomes distorted. What should you do? Could it be a multicasting issue?
Node operators can now detect networking problems on the Access Grid using the latest in a series of online tutorials.
Boston University, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and OSC (Ohio Supercomputer Center) are pleased to introduce "Access Grid Network Troubleshooting: A Guide for Technical Users," available on the NCSA WebCT server at webct.ncsa.uiuc.edu:8900.
"Access to the fast lanes of the networked world is an important asset for the state's technology base," said Frank Samuel, Science and Technology Advisor to Ohio Governor Taft. Under funding from the Ohio Department of Development Technology Innovation Division, Ohio's Broadband Map will be accessible on-line in various formats, including overlays of key population and industry data. The web-enabled version of the map is expected to be available in July 2001, through the www.ecom-ohio.org site.
Ready or not, electronic commerce is transforming the nation's economy. Quick adaptation to e-commerce capabilities is the key to global competitiveness in the 21st century. Next week, Ohio will become the first state to benchmark its readiness for this new economy.
